Mamie made frequent trips to the branch post office. One day she confronted a long line of people who were waiting for service from the postal clerks. Mamie only needed stamps, so a helpful observer asked, “Why don’t you use the stamp machine? You can get all the stamps you need,and you won’t have to wait in line.”
Mamie said, “I know, but the machine can’t ask me about my arthritis.”
Many of the modern conveniences save time and money, but move us farther and farther away from interaction with each other. For example, the car that has made getting to church quicker and easier also takes us farther away more quickly.
Let us remember to take time for each other, to show others we care, to be of service when we can. Remember the words from the writer of Galatians 6:2: “Bear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
God, thank You for our Christian family. Amen.
In GOD we Trust!
